Another Death...


The first stirrings of Spring is supposed to be a time of life, instead, it seems the opposite. Another influential singer has died, though I doubt many of you have heard of this one. Any bonafide Gen X'er would recognize her music immediately.

Her name is Blossom Dearie. You would recognize her for her "Number Eight" song and many others on Schoolhouse Rock. She was actually a very talented traditional Jazz musician. Retro junkies like me are grieving the loss.
I do not know the details...

I was recently introduced to her music she's amazing. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Speaking of music and to honor all the great jazz singers out there... I've been taking voice lessons which encompasses lots of Ella Fitzgerald and my recent addictions of Fats Waller and Etta James. Many blessings again thanks for visiting my page and also for honoring a Blossom D.
